‘Advanced Integration Engine’ to help healthcare providers overcome mobilisation challenges

5 September 2012 – Advanced Health & Care (Advanced) today announces the launch of Advanced Integration Engine (AIE), powered by Blue Prism. AIE enables Advanced’s market-leading mobile patient management solution, iNurse, to integrate with all major community patient management systems and clinical patient administration systems (PAS).

iNurse integrates tightly with Advanced’s own systems, Adastra, Crosscare and Advanced Community. However with AIE, iNurse can now link with other patient management and PAS systems, enabling even more healthcare providers to enjoy the mobilisation benefits of iNurse.

iNurse enables community clinicians and nursing teams to record and communicate patient care information using handheld devices. Patient care information and records can be accessed, recorded and communicated using iNurse at the point of care, thereby increasing both the time spent with patients and the number of patient visits.

AIE is built on Blue Prism technology, which is already widely used within the NHS. The solution allows case, appointment and outcome data to safely and reliably flow from the Community PAS to and from iNurse.

The AIE is so flexible that users have the option to change their patient management/PAS system and still continue to use iNurse for mobile working. This is essential in this climate of change.

Jim Chase, Managing Director of Advanced Health & Care says, “AIE is a useful technology as it allows providers that are currently locked into community systems without mobilisation to benefit from iNurse without having to negotiate costly and complex software interfaces. Providers and patients can now take advantage of mobile technology quickly and at lower cost.”

Advanced’s mobile solutions are already in use by over 13,000 health and care workers. With the launch of AIE, the number of iNurse users is expected to increase considerably over the next 12 months.
